NORTH RICHLAND HILLS Authorities tell News 8 a suspicious device found in a North Texas neighborhood did contain explosives.
It was found near a copy of the Koran. Investigators dont know whether they were left by the same person.
A resident found what appeared to be a coke can on the street just before noon Thursday. What he saw inside, however, caused him to call 9-1-1.
Its some type of metal in a coke can, said Sean Hughes, Northeast Explosives Response Team. Firefighters at the scene called in the Northeast Explosives Response Team.
They zip tied the can in case it was a grenade type of device with a trigger, and they secured the can, and then they picked it up and put it in the trailer. Hughes said.

IF there is a connection between the explosive and the Koran, I say they were placed there by a mooslim so that they could say they are being picked on.
and that’s why my parents fled Texas in 1921...
Does anyone market the Koran printed on rolls of
A connection between the Koran and explosives go figure.
why would someone pick up a can and look inside?
The infidels set us up the bomb!
It's really disgusting, as anyone could have picked it -- someone wanting to dispose of litter, a child noticing an out of place pop can, or some homeless soul collecting aluminum to sell at the recyclers.
Lots of reasons to pick one up — picking up unsightly litter, collecting cans that can be redeemed for the deposit refund, or just picking up a recyclable can to put it in a recycling bin.
Once you’ve picked up what appeared to be an empty can, and it feels a lot heavier than an empty can but the weight isn’t sloshing around like liquid, you’d look inside to see what the heck is making the can weigh so much.
The Who would defile some explosives with the Koran?
Something about this stinks to high heaven.
I used to collect them now and then. Probably will again in this economy. Never really walked up the street doing it though.
My thoughts, too.
Should have added a /sarc tag. 1.5 years ago it was $0.65 a pound.
This could be a prank, with a Koran thrown in to confuse things and get someone their 15 minutes of fame, but with a bomb scare in Dallas last month and a grenade launcher found in Houston last week--not to mention the terrible tragedy in Fort Hood--I am getting more nervous that a lot small Muslim cells are being given a go-ahead to stir things up, even here in Texas of all places.
With the same Imam giving orders to the Fort Hood shooter and the Nigerian underpants bomber, I think Obama is finally realizing that we're about to start calling him "Hussein" if he cannot or will not get on top of the Terrorist War that's was declared on us eight years ago.
bc aluminum cans bring $0.05 a pound now.
Curious how many cans to the pound say using 12 oz soda cans? Any Idea?
